Confirmation for Youth Ages 13 & up
The latest service of Confirmation took place on May 5th, 2019 when Bishop Rob Hirschfeld confirmed 17 youth, 7 adults and 4 reaffirmations.
Our next Confirmation class will begin in the fall of 2020 and with a confirmation service in the spring of 2021. Confirmation classes will be offered for youth age 13 and up beginning in the fall. Separate classes for adults will also be offered. We use the Confirm not Conform program.
Confirm not Conform is a youth confirmation program that takes exposes youth to a wide range of topics, including Scripture, sacraments, creeds, heresy, prayer, other religions, and serving others, and asks them to think through what they believe and why. It emphasizes finding one’s own voice rather than simply conforming to an external standard. It is a program that respects the work youth and adults do as they explore their faith. We trust that when people put in the effort to articulate what they believe and why, they will make good choices about their next step in faith.
